I had nothing to lose by turning away from materia medica. I had tried it and found it wanting. I knew not whether Christian Science would heal me, but I had suffered since a baby from ruthless syringes, chemicals, and the knife. I needed Christian Science; I listened to the voice of Truth and was grateful. I was completely healed of the abscess, and was given a sign for which I had not asked, my hearing was restored. I do not know whether a new eardrum formed or what physical change took place in the ear. I only know that while sitting in church one Sunday morning I became conscious of the fact that I was hearing out of what was supposed to be my deaf ear. Upon arriving home I went to the telephone and placed the receiver to that ear to be sure that I could hear, for I felt that would be the supreme test. And I heard. I then knew the healing was complete. It was then about four years since the abscess had been healed, for which healing I was grateful, but to receive hearing was to me a miracle.
For the physical healings I am grateful, but first I am glad that the "good tidings of great joy" have come to this suffering world. I am glad for the truth that brings to pass here and now the glorious promises of the Bible. I am grateful that all of God's ways are living ways, that we do not have to die to know Him. I am grateful to that dear woman, Mrs. Eddy, for her gift to the world, and to the practitioners who have helped me along the way.
